Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's comments after United crash out of the UCL

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his team was not good enough last night against RB Leipzig, but were unlucky in the end after the match at the Red Bull Arena.

He told BT Sport: "You can't say we were good enough, we weren't.

"We started really well in this group and the big defeat was in Istanbul. That's the one you look back at and think that's where we lost the points we should have had.

"You cannot give a team a 3-0 lead and expect to come back.

"We were unlucky towards the end. I thought the effort and character was there.

"We knew we had to defend crosses, we knew we had to defend balls in the box and we couldn't clear them. As a footballer, you can't feel sorry for yourself."

Comments on Pogba

Solskjaer told BT Sport: "You have to ask Paul if he's happy or unhappy. I'm not going to speak for him. He is focused on doing his best for the team when he's here.

"He is working hard in training and he just needs to focus on his performances.

"Now is not the time to discuss transfer targets and ins and outs."
